Final revelation. God spoke about the salvation by Christ in all Old Testament, but now, in "the Christ event", He made the revelation definitive clear, He put it in all the light. The revelation of salvation in Christ is finished: He will not add to it. Apart from this revelation is darkness.
Excellent! A great proposition: sin is serious, guilt is universal, corruption is total. The Scriptural proof of the doctrine. And the conclusion, in verses 19 and 20. Excellent preaching, serious presentation of Biblical truth!
Serious. Excellent explanation of the arguments of the Jews in this verses by which they try to excuse their refusal of listening to the Gospel. God brings to light this kind of perverted mind, perverted argumentation.
Great Blessing This sermon was a great blessing to my soul, containing as it does the assurance of God's care for his people. I sent this to an old and dear friend who is distressed at troubles in his own denomination that he has faithfully served these long years, but that is now on the verge of apostasy as he put it. May the Lord continue gracious to all his blood-bought people in these dire times.
Powerful. A threat; a glorious provision; the error; a blessed assurance. Clear biblical teaching, but not only general principles, but many particular application and illustration of the church using carnal methods in trying to do the work of the Lord.
4 churches. A look at the four churches in Revelation 2: the church who lacks love; the little church; the lax church; the church of the libertines. A very searching message in regard of the state of our churches.
Call to a holy life. A presentation of the seven letters written to the seven churches, with the description of Christ, the situation of the church and the promise given to those who conquer. Christ, the Omniscient God, knows everything about us, about His churches, and He calls us to a holy life.
